    • It is implied that the Snow Globe is tied to the energy of Doctor Manhattan who was originally responsible for destroying the Flashpoint Timeline.[1]
  • This issue confirms that Eobard Thawne has become once again a living paradox despite Barry Allen having reset his timeline at the end of The Flash #762.
    • On Prime Earth, after becoming aware of Thawne's return, Barry Allen mentions wanting to call the Justice League against Eobard Thawne, but this is an error as the League was disbanded in the aftermath of the Dark Crisis[2] which will be revealed to have taken place shortly before these events.[3]
  • In the Flashpoint Timeline, it is revealed that Wonder Woman is still alive in the reborn Flashpoint Timeline; she ultimately manages to kill Aquaman with his own Trident.


  • Bruce Wayne mentions having shielded the Batcave against evil speedsters' attacks, including Thawne's, which is a reference to the events of Batman (Volume 3) #21 where Eobard Thawne infiltrated the Batcave and almost killed the Caped Crusader.
  • Oliver Queen is mentioned to be killed by Freedom Beast, who claimed Queen for murdering his own daughter. This is a reference to the events of Flashpoint: Green Arrow Industries #1.
